The show is run by a student theater group operating out of the University of Auckland. Every year the group presents a play in the German language, bringing together members of the German speaking community for one week-long theater season in mid-August.

This year's show is a hilarious and inventive mash-up of the Best of Grimms fairytales. In short, the play centers on the Grimms themselves as they decide to bring their beloved works to the stage. But authors don’t always make excellent directors and mishaps are bound to happen! The Grimms enlist a range of demanding princesses as they search for a happy ending, obstructed by the Witch and the Evil Stepmother. Who will come out on top? Will Grimms be able to keep their crazy cast happy, or will the show take on a life of its own? Fun for the whole family awaits in this exciting spectacle.
